Ok this is not really a rumoured target now is it? But I don’t think adding a pretty much signed but not quite yet category on the site, it may just get a bit complicated. Anyway it appears as if Mohamed Elneny has all but signed for Arsenal, all that is missing is the work permit which Arsenal are fairly confident of getting sorted.

The excellent @CulannDavies has made this excellent compilation of his match against Fiorentina. Looks a very good passer of the ball, both long and short and also in between the lines which is what we will be missing without either Santi Cazorla or Mikel Arteta so that should be good fun. Difficult to know what he is like without the ball on this video but I guess time will tell.
